re: iPhone 5: My First Week
This article is WEAK. It makes no mention of how iOS 6 is causing people with a year or two old device, like iPod Touch 4G causing the App Store to crash. The 5 boasts a (technically) larger screen but it is puny and not even close to what the competition brings. The iPhone screen that is so slightly longer is still as narrow as ever and really looks disproportionate. All the features mentioned in the 5 are ALL, and I mean ALL, incremental upgrades. Yes, in some areas there are improvements but that MUST take place in technology. It is a given. You can't give credit when something is the norm. It's like saying the new Toyota Camera is more fuel efficient than last year. Umm. Yeah, it is suppose to be. That's the natural order of things, especially in the tech world.
Zeman is right though, don't go out and get the 5 unless you must. However, don't be surprised if the iPhone 5 drops down to a crazy low price this Xmas or Black Friday giving a lot of people even more buyers remorse in getting the iPhone 5 so soon and for $179-199 CDN/USD.
